K2: Siren of the Himalayas
Local Sightings Film Festival 2013

Sep 29

Dave Ohlson  Yakima, WA  75 min

Sunday, Sep 29 at 07:00PM

At 8,611 meters, K2 (the second-highest peak after Everest) is usually considered the world's most challenging climb. Its summit eludes even the most devoted professional alpinists, and the mountain is so treacherous that one in four summiteers die attempting to scale it. Harsh weather conditions and demanding technical climbs have made producing documentary films on K2 extremely difficult, and footage from these expeditions is rare. Director Dave Ohlson joins an elite climbing group on their epic K2 journey, which takes place on the 100-year anniversary of the Duke of Abruzzi's landmark expedition in 1909.
